Kate Bayley and Rachel Pearce have also been recognised for their active engagement in their community, support for colleagues and going the extra mile for clients.

Coodes Solicitors Chairman Peter Lamble said: I’m thrilled that as a business we’ve been shortlisted for four separate awards, covering three different Coodes teams. Across the organisation we’ve worked hard to fight for, champion and deliver for our clients so this acknowledgement is really exciting.
